Welcome to the home for all things related to WV Irish Road Bowling! Here you can find information about the sports history, team and singles events in your area, news stories, and more.
Thanks to the West Virginia Irish Road Bowling Association, healthy, outdoor family-fun is happening on country roads all over West Virginia. In 2019, the sport saw an increase in events, participation, and funds raised for local charities. With the steady increase in popularity, bowlers from as far away as Wisconsin, Savannah GA, and Greensboro NC competed on our country roads in 2019. WV bowlers also saw success outside the state. WV teams and singles bowlers traveled to Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina, New York and Georgia to successfully represent our state.
The WVIRBA is a non-profit that formed in the small town of Ireland WV. With the help of their volunteers, the sport has continued to grow and in 2020, will be celebrating 25 years of Irish Road Bowling in WV.
News and updated information will be added periodically, so check back as this site continues to grow with the popularity of Irish Road Bowling.
